    I have an 06 Tacoma Sport, but for some lame reason it didn't come with the steering wheel audio controls. I know that the air bag is there so install might be a little tricky. First, can you buy and install these? Second, is anyone parting out a an 05+ Tacoma and has one they want to give up. Yes, I still use my OEM CD player.

    I can be done. You need the controls, the matching airbag, and the clockspring for a truck with premium audio.
